load bearing beam question


I am working on a house at our farm and years ago about 50 to be exact a porch was closed in and turned into a room. The outside wall is buckling now the top is kicking out and the bottom is pulling inward also the bottom beam along the front side of the house is twisting. Does there need to be a load bearing beam on the outside wall of the enclosed porch? The original load bearing beam is 7 feet from the outside wall and the roof is ends on that outside wall.

Only an onsite inspection by an engineer can tell you for sure. Pictures might help us guide you.
